New Jaguar XE was launched in Mumbai by Jaguar Landrover India President and Managing director Rohit Suri on December 4th 2019. The pricing starts at Rs. 44.98 Lakhs. The 2020 Jaguar XE comes with a host of exterior and interior modifications to take on the likes of Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Volvo S60 Cross Country. Smartdrive here explores the features of the new luxury sedan.
Like all Jaguars, the New XE instinctively manages to catch the eye. From its muscular stance and sculpted bonnet, to the new front and rear bumpers, larger front grille and slimmer LED headlights and tail lights, you can tell at a glance that this is one extraordinary sporting saloon.
Get behind the wheel of the New XE and you’ll feel like you’re seated in a sports car. You’ll find yourself comfortably cocooned by its wraparound dashboard. You’ll appreciate the impeccable attention to detail, enhancements in aesthetics and feel of the New XE, along with increased veneer coverage, for greater luxury.
A refreshed cockpit-style interior offers outstanding levels of comfort, and the raised centre console adds to the New XE’s sportiness. Everything revolves around you and was conceived with you in mind and many of you will cherish and enjoy the very engaging new SportShift Selector.
The Smartphone Pack is perfect for mobile phone screen sharing, and makes it easy to use an interactive set of apps through New XE’s Touch Pro system. It helps you to stay connected to your smartphone whilst in the car.
Connected Navigation Pro (fitted as standard) is a navigation system which allows you to enjoy a continually seamless experience, while making your journeys easier and less stressful. You can plan your route and share your ETA with friends.
You can now charge your mobile phone by simply resting it on the wireless device charger in front of the SportShift Selector. This technology is new to Jaguar, and the New XE is the first of our cars to feature it.
Interactive Driver Display uses high-definition, crystal-clear graphics to show 3D maps, vehicle settings, contacts and media options. You simply need to select what you want to see on the screen at any time, and control everything from the multi-function steering wheel.
The Jaguar Audio System brings new levels of depth, clarity and realism to your favourite music – whether you’re enjoying the twists and turns of an open road or stuck in rush-hour traffic.
A Driver Condition Monitor on the New XE, identifies your fatigue levels based on your driving behaviour and the length and time of your journey. If it thinks you need a break, it’ll tell you.
Lane Keep Assist detects when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of the lane and applies a corrective torque to the steering wheel, encouraging you to guide your vehicle back.
To help you maneouvre in and out of tight spaces, the new XE features Park Assist and 360° Parking Aid, taking the stress out of parking.
A lightweight aluminium chassis and double wishbone front suspension enables the highest levels of handling and road holding, delivering a spine-tingling driving experience. Unusually for an executive sports saloon, it also features a sophisticated Integral Link rear suspension, which provides sharp response and handling, while still retaining a refined and luxurious ride.
Also, to help the New XE tackle winding roads, there’s intelligent Torque Vectoring by Braking technology. On tight turns, it applies the brake to the inside wheel and directs more rotating force from the engine to the wheel with the most grip. The result is an exceptional combination of sports car-like agility, more consistent road holding, and a feeling of added confidence when you’re driving.
Jaguar Drive Control allows you to select from Comfort, Eco, Dynamic Mode. Each Mode has its own tailor-made programme which alters different parameters, such as engine and transmission response, steering feel, traction and stability control.
The beating heart of every New XE is a powerful, British-built, Turbocharged Petrol or Diesel engine. Both engines are constructed of lightweight aluminium alloy which, combined with advanced low-friction technologies, deliver a refined, efficient and engaging driving experience.
